This guide has been developed for Save the Children’s health and nutrition staff and partners so they can better support the meaningful participation of children and young people in health and nutrition programmes. As defined by Save the Children, “[P]articipation is about having the opportunity to express a view, influence decision making and achieve change. Children’s participation is an informal and willing involvement of all children, including the most marginalised and those of different ages and abilities, in any matter concerning them directly or indirectly. Children’s participation is a way of working and an essential principle that cuts across all programmes and takes place in all arenas, from homes to government and from local to international levels.”
